I am an incoming faculty at Wellcome Sanger Institute and CCAIM at University of Cambridge. I was director of machine learning research at Relation Therapeutics and also member of ELLIS.

We aim to leverage AI and advanced experimental techniques to engineer cells and modulate their response to disease and perturbations and translated them for diagnostics, therapeutics, and drug discovery.

I have received multiple awards for my research (see example) and have been featured in press/journals (see research). Additionally, I have been awarded multiple fellowships, grants, and scholarships, including those from Joachim Hertz, EMBL, and Meta.

Previously, I completed my PhD in Computational Biology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Helmholtz Munich under the supervision of Fabian Theis.

In addition to my academic activities, I have industry experience as a researcher, consultant, and advisor in both biotechnology and ML/AI companies, including:
